WWE NXT Superstar, Johnny Gargano recently spoke with TMZ Sports where he gave his opinion on people calling WWE NXT the minor league of WWE.
Gargano has been a crucial part of WWE NXT’s success and he made his feelings very clear about those who call it developmental.
“That’s BS,” Gargano stated emphatically. “That is complete garbage and it is something that me and a lot of guys have worked to dispel for a very long time. Anyone out there that uses the words ‘main roster’ when talking about RAW and SmackDown, how about you watch the show on Wednesday nights and you’ll see the real ‘main roster.’
“You’ll see the best wrestling show on the planet. You will see the best locker room on the planet, led by me! So, ‘main roster,’ ‘developmental,’ you’re stupid if you use those words! You’re stupid, quit it!”
Gargano then went on to discuss his recent personality change, admitting that he is still the same person, despite any changes.
“I’m still the same Johnny Gargano. For the first time in a long time though, my eyes are wide open,” Gargano said. “I’m seeing things with a new perspective. I’m seeing things under a new light and we’ll see what comes of that.”
